Bearpit Garden Work Party

Last week we worked all week to get the path installed into the garden in the Bearpit and now we are moving our attention to levelling the soil and beginning to sow some ground cover crops that will overwinter and put nitrogen back into the soil.

We’d love to see you if you’re around!! All are welcome although under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.

Castle Park Work Party

We are saddened to say the bed in Castle Park is looking a little sorry for itself and so on Tuesday we will be addressing that but removing lots of the older planting and popping in some new plants and sowing some seeds. This will be the beginning of the autumn and overwintering crops that we are going to plant this year, in order to try o keep the bed productive for as long as we can.

If you’d like to pop along and help out, we’ll be there from 11 to 1. Everyone is welcome with no skills needed, other than enthusiasm and a smile!!
